Touch and Match Board

£9.00GBP Excl VAT
SKU: 2553-101

Identify and match the 12 tactile, hardwood counters with their corresponding ‘home’ on the board. Frequently used as a game or for pure sensory stimulus.

The "Touch and Match Board" is a sensory integration tool designed to provide tactile stimulation and promote sensory processing skills. This board features a set of textured surfaces that are to be matched with corresponding insets that hold the same textures.

Benefits of the "Touch and Match Board" for sensory integration include:

  1. Tactile Discrimination: Helps individuals distinguish between different types of tactile stimuli, enhancing their ability to identify objects by touch alone.

  2. Fine Motor Skills: Encourages the development of fine motor skills as individuals manipulate the pieces to match the textures.

  3. Cognitive Development: Promotes problem-solving and memory as users must recall the location of specific textures to make correct matches.

  4. Sensory Exploration: Provides an opportunity for sensory seekers to explore various textures in a controlled manner.

  5. Concentration and Focus: Engaging in the activity can improve concentration and the ability to focus on a task to completion.

  6. Language Skills: Can be used to expand vocabulary as children learn the names of different textures and materials.

  7. Independence: Encourages independent play and exploration, allowing individuals to engage with the board at their own pace.

The "Touch and Match Board" can be an excellent addition to a sensory room or a therapeutic session aimed at improving sensory integration, especially in children with sensory processing challenges. It is a versatile tool that can be used by therapists, educators, and parents alike to support sensory integration therapy objectives.
